Barton Community College’s Center for Adult Education will soon begin another nine-week GED Preparation Class. However, orientation sessions are required before starting the class.
Multiple delivery types are available for students to select for orientation. Students can choose between LiveOnline, Fuzion or face-to-face sessions. LiveOnline sessions will meet exclusively via Zoom. Fuzion sessions will feature a combination of face-to-face students and Zoom students.
There are two sessions available for orientation from Sept. 21-24 from 8 – 11 a.m. and Sept. 22, 24, and 29th from 6-9 p.m.
Actual GED classes will start the following week and will be offered from 8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. Monday through Thursday or from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
Students will complete required testing, learn how to navigate their GED.com account and learn about WorkReady! Students will also meet one-on-one with their instructor to discuss goals, expectations, attendance requirements and workload.
Those interested in taking the GED exam without any preparation instruction can do so right away but are urged to receive advising before moving forward.
Minors must bring a parent or legal guardian to enroll. A completed Compulsory Attendance Waiver is required for any student 16 or 17 years of age, prior to starting classes. The form can be furnished by the last school the student attended. If students are unable to obtain a form, they can contact the Adult Education office and a form can be sent out.
